U.S. v. Williams

Federal 7th Circuit Court
Criminal Court
Supervised Release
Case Number: 
No. 13-2836
Decision Date: 
January 14, 2014
Federal District: 
E.D. Wisc.
Dist. Ct. did not err in directing defendant to reimburse govt. $1,200 that govt. used as “buy money” in three controlled drug purchases to compensate defendant for drugs purchased by informant that formed basis of charged offense, where Dist. Ct. made such requirement as condition of defendant’s supervised release. Said directive was previously upheld in Daddato, 996 F.2d 903, as permissible condition of supervised release, and Ct. rejected defendant’s claim that imposition of instant directive to repay drug “buy money” did not further any legitimate penological goal.
